This film documents the historic trolley track removal that took place on Armistice Day, November 11, 1942, in Barre, Vermont, in response to the government's need for scrap metal for the war effort. The job was accomplished in one day, with Barre leading Vermont in amount of scrap metal per capita collected for the war effort. The project was sponsored by Barre Post No. 10, American Legion. Scenes in the film include an opening shot of the sculpture "Youth Triumphant" of the Soldiers' and Sailors' Memorial, businesses along Main Street, men, both civilians and soldiers, using jackhammers, sledgehammers, shovels, and other tools to tear out the tracks, women serving refreshments, a brief shot of a high school band walking down the sidewalk, and brief scenes of Governor William H. Wills lending a helping hand. Towards the end of the film, even children and women get involved in working to free the tracks.
